Veteran Employment Transition Act of 2011 Introduced
Committee Chairman Baucus (D-MT) and Senator Grassley (R-IA) have introduced a new
WOTC Veterans category (Senate Bill 146 – Veteran Employment Transition Act of 2011).
The bill would extend WOTC to certain recently discharged veterans.
The new Veterans WOTC category would:
all veterans on active duty during the past five years who have discharge paperwork
showing 180 days of active duty
those serving in the national guard as well as in traditional military
an employer to take the credit based on documentation
directly from the Department of Defense (DOD) without having to go through the tax
credit’s current certification process.
